Thank you for sharing!
On February the 24th, I will be performing a new Sleep Concert with Vittorio Guindani and Simone Lombardi at CARME, the amazing restored ex-church now dedicated to art performances and exhibitions.

What you see is a short summary of the live sound installation held in the ancient Santa Giulia Monastery.
Magic realism from sound.
Video of November 2014 full performance of Flos + Markus Stockhausen + No Frills dance company
Everything started with a long session made at Ritmo & Blu magic studio.
After that both the producers Stefano Moretti and Stefano Castagna have gone through a very deep and detailed post production.
Their ability to join in such a strange production impressed me immensely.
Blending pure electronics, intuitive improvisation, found sounds, raw and primitive timbres all together to generate a readable and structured music has rarely offered me such a spontaneous, fluid and natural result.
It’s been a honor to work with these two great producers.
Gullwing is the first track of the collaboration between Flos and Sender to show up to public domain.
Just published in Berlin’s hard beating heart.
December the 31st.
Pure magic in a magic place, surrounded by magic humans.
It was 2009 the last time I played with Markus.
We played at a festival with Tara Bouman, following to our previous gigs as intuitive ensemble that lead to the Flowers of Now album.
This time I will be playing with Markus as Flos, the first time I will ever use the sound board with him.
The gig will be a show in which the dancers directed by Emanuela Bondavalli will be with us on stage.
The days following the gig, which will be on November the 22nd, Markus will host a workshop in Selva Capuzza.
The focus will be on using the voice and managing the silence.
As always, following Markus on such themes will mean to expand their meaning and connections to limits that have not been imagined before sharing time with him.
I always consider that playing with such an intense human being has been one of the blessings of my musical journey.
I like the idea of sharing the stage with him and with this new project in which me and Stefano Castagna are building such abstract environments as the ones of Flos are.
Very curious to see what will be happening by mixing our sounds together.
Recorded in one day, me and Stefano Castagna in full improvisation with our sound boards, guitar, bass guitar and any kind of object we could put our hands on.
Processed in real time with laptops and old school hardware processors, this album represents what a live performance of Flos can be.
It has been released in digital and as a physical cd in a 200 copies run.
I have to confess I like to listen to it quite often and keep finding new things happening here and there.
How surpring is this new project.
